Offset Moment Connection

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
A structural steel fabricator/erector has requested advice from me for the following issue. The SOR for a contract the erector is working on is requiring him to provide a full moment capacity moment connection for a W21x57 beam to W12x72 column connection. All steel is 50 ksi. The beam frames into the column's flange. The issue is the beam is offset 7 3/4" from the column centerline. Is a moment connection possible with this amount of offset?
